'She's living in a prison of self imposed ignorance': Glenn Beck blasts AOC over 'concentration camp' claim

'She is becoming extraordinarily dangerous to the truth'

On Wednesday's radio show, Glenn Beck had some harsh words for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) who said Monday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention centers on our southern border are like "concentration camps."

"She's living in a prison of self imposed ignorance," Glenn said. "I think we should discuss having her obtain a license to be able to walk around with this much stupidity, because she is becoming extraordinarily dangerous to the truth."

"She just is so filled with her own self, and surrounded by people who always agree with her, that she doesn't realize just how stupid she is," he added.

Glenn was referring to Ocasio-Cortez's controversial claim that, "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps," which she made during an Instagram live-stream video on Monday night.

Despite intense backlash, the freshman congresswoman doubled down on her claim in a tweet Wednesday morning, saying "not one dime" should go to the Department of Homeland Security for building the facilities "as they detain children and families."

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, do some homework," Glenn said. "For the truth to be so distorted, you are either a moron and there's nothing that can be done, or something seriously is wrong with you and your priorities.... How is it you can be this stupid on something so important?"

"A concentration camp is in North Korea. A concentration camp is currently going on in China. It's not happening on our border. And if you really cared, you would have been down there with me, at the border, when Obama was putting people in cages, and I begged for anybody to pay attention," he continued.
